View Full Version : Do you have a thief!

2nd August 2006, 04:15 PM
YES we do,

Her name is Whintney! :jump:

We have never had one before and have always been able to leave plates on the table with food on...always 100% safe....until now....

Oh yes you leave the chair and with a flash she is in there, I mean this lady is super quick! you just wave goodbye to your food! :cry*ing:

We have never had a thief in the house before so new notes are posted on the doors!! reminders that she is about....watching...waiting...

I must admit although it is really naughty it is so funny! you wouldn't think she had an ounce of naughtiness in her little bones but this one is a clever one, she thinks the route out first and is one step ahead of me!

I put my plate down and went to answer the door...when I came back I had an empty paper plate on the floor! I'm not sure which one did...but I can guess :?

Nope, don't belive either of you :rotfl: Cathy, Jake and Shelby look far too innocent and I know that our darling whitney is far too much of an *ng*l to even think about this, Alison - you must have had a stray cat in or something :lol:

Maxx will eat biscuits and things (Alison, remember the chocolate hob nobs and a still sleeping Hunnybuns?) if left unattended but I've never known him to take off an unattended plate. Charlie however, as sweet and innocent as he looks will try and steal food from your plate as you are eating off it - he doesn't even have the decency to wait until you are looking the other way :yikes

We can't leave food out, but it's mostly because of our cat Buck.

Our biggest problem with our dogs is coffee, especially if it has cream in it. There are at least 2 of ours that will help themselves to coffee if we leave it on the coffee table next to our chair couch.

Whitney, I thought you were a lady ;)

:lol: :lol:

Cailean can't be trusted either - unfortunately he can reach the worktop in the kitchen - he's caught me out many a morning when I've been making sandwiches and Jennifer's distracted me....

needless to say, I've returned to wonder where the sandwich went icon_whistling

The cats eat from the table, cos he can't be trusted with their food but if we leave a chair out just a couple of inches, he can pull the chair out enough to climb on and thence onto the table. :)

How can you be annoyed. It's just soooo funny.

2nd August 2006, 08:06 PM
Yes I have a little thief to! :lol: If someone accidentally forget some food on the table Molder is very quick to catch the chance and the food is gone on the second! He is a clever boy and he always find it if it's food somwhere. He jumps upon a chairs and from the sofa upon the table in the living room, he almost do everything for just a tiny piece of some food! If it's somthing as he can possibly eat he loves it.. and he loves it actually to though he can not eat it, he tries to eat everything that he see, like once I saw he was chewing something and I checked it out, then it was a little rock as he was trying to eat!

That is so funny!! Such similar characteristics but completely different dogs in every way personality wise!!

Bailey is one of those that will not wait for you to look the other way - out of your mouth or from your plate he will be there in a flash if food is on offer!!

He has an obsession with chewing gum lately and when i am chewing some he just sits as close as he can get to my mouth staring at me chewing and just waiting and hoping for it to fall out!!!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

2nd August 2006, 08:37 PM
OMG chewing gum yukkkkkkkkkkkkkk why do they like it so much? I am forever retrieving lumps of the stuff from Maxx's mouth when we are on a walk :(

2nd August 2006, 08:43 PM
Oh Whitney and we thought you were such a little *ng*l

It must have been one of those Shelties wearing a Cavalier suit to disguise themselves :lol: :lol:

Yes I have the biggest thief out...my Rupert!! He is just always two steps ahead of me!!!

Friends used to have a vegetable rack...Rupert thought it was the best self service restaurant he'd ever encountered!! If they moved things to the top rack, he'd just pull the whole thing over to get to it!!

2nd August 2006, 08:50 PM
Are they still friends Nicki ? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Maxx loves the veg rack too - especially when I buy too much fruit and put it on the top shelf :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't know but I'm forever pulling Shelby away from chewed up gum on the sidewalks. Once pulled a big old chunk of green gum out of her mouth. Yuck!

Casey is our smart thief! He now has a new trick if we go out. He pulls the kitchen chair over to the counter so he can surf for food. Managed to get a steak off the counter when I went to get the mail. :yikes

If I take the doggie stairs away from the bed to keep them off, he is the only one who manages to drag the stairs back in position again. And don't leave anything on the night table...gone. :sl*p:

India is my thief. More than once I have returned to our living room to find her on the arm of the loveseat slurping my cocoa :shock: out of the mug on the lamp table. Fortunately she didn't get enough to make herself sick. :lol:

3rd August 2006, 03:56 AM
I think we luck out since Pixie isn't a jumper. She'll just sit and stare and bark if we leave a plate unattended. Although, I suspect she enlists the help of Max the cat to knock stuff to the floor for her...he seems to like flicking his kibble off his feeding table onto the floor. icon_whistling

But...Pixie likes to get into my purse and steal things. A while ago she had her nose in my bag and when I told her no, she stuck her head up...dollar bill in her mouth and ran off with it into the kitchen :sl*p:

3rd August 2006, 07:45 AM
It just goes to show what clever little dogs we all have, seems they all have their own funny little ways of being "naughty"....

but I think we all seem to enjoy it...MMmmmmmm :jump:

Alison, Wilts, U.K.

3rd August 2006, 08:27 AM
Are they still friends Nicki ? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Strangely enough...NO :yikes

but not actually because of this icon_whistling they thought it was very funny!!

Wonderful to read everyone's stories...makes me feel better, I haven't actually got THE worst behaved Cavaliers then!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

3rd August 2006, 09:45 AM
LMAO Molly,

Can you try and video him? I'd love to see him in action :lol:

I have a pic somewhere of Maxx clambering from the sofa onto our low side table to try and get to me on the chair next to it - just to see what I was eating :roll: . I have searched the computer this morning and can't find it :(

3rd August 2006, 12:58 PM
Woody is our thief - he can hang on for 30 minutes or so before he tries to get something, or if I put some down to get and get a drink he is in there - had some breakfast last night... went out to get a drink and he was licking the milk.....

4th August 2006, 04:41 PM
My dogs do that too! While we're eating Lovey jumps on a chair, and watches the food for when she has a chance to get up there. Then when she gets it, she takes it into her crate, and eats it. Penny doesn't wait, she just jumps up there, and eats like a goat.

4th August 2006, 05:06 PM
Ok. Here's Casey's latest theft. He is NOT reading in bed. He is EATING in bed. Got my book off the night table and chewed it good. The funniest part? The title of the book was "How to Right a Dog Gone Wrong." And my DH didn't try and save the book...went for the camera instead!


4th August 2006, 05:15 PM
Oh that is so funny, just look at that little cheeky monkey still with your book while you took the picture... :lol: :lol: :lol: no shame at all :lol:

I think they just know that they can get away with nearly anything...even the naughtiest things are so cute when done by a Cavalier...!!!

Perhaps he fancied a bed time read...you have a clever one there don't you think!

Alison, Wilts, U.K.

4th August 2006, 06:35 PM
Awww now come on Molly, he wasn't chewing your book, he was trying to turn the pages as he read it and some got accidentally ripped :lol:

He's such a beautiful boy that you could never be cross with him ;) :lol:

4th August 2006, 09:37 PM
All these smart clever dogs have devils horns hiding under their angelic faces. They are all sooooo funny aren't they!

4th August 2006, 10:03 PM

:rotfl: Heeheehee Molly, he looks so cute! I notice he has some nice toys in bed for after he's finished reading, er, chewing! Is that a heave-a-beaver toy? :lol:

5th August 2006, 12:52 AM
Good eye, Cathy. Yup. That's a a well chewed beaver. All my dogs love that thing. Especially Casey, aka Jaws, my gnaw-ty boy!

And Donna, you are right. It is soooo hard to get mad at that sweet boy.
